, his inaugural speech was very domestically focused. look, we just had elections in israel, john kerry not in the same place benjamin netanyahu is regarding a two-state solution, at least right now. there are huge challenges, iran, there are huge challenges in the foreign policy front that don't get talked about as much, but are clearly things that not only will be difficult for the president and his team to navigate, but will also have a significant say in how this president is viewed by history. >> and, by the way, we just got word that the white house is going to proceed with a nomination of general allen to be the nato supreme allied commander now that he's been cleared by the pentagon investigation going back to the petraeus case. thanks to all of you, david sanger and kelly o'donnell, of course, and chris cillizza, see you later. thanks very much. >>> clinton today put a lot of blame on congress for withholding aid. >> we have to get our act together between the administration and congress. if this is a priority and if we are serious about trying it help this government stand up

it because he doesn't have to worry about getting re-elected. >> well, he wasn't concealing anything. he's a progressive democrat. i loved the speech yesterday because of what he didn't say. he very often goes into this kind of airy dreaming of how we'll just transcend partisanship. well, we won't. politics is partisan. washington is partisan. it was for president clinton who wanted to campaign that he was there, campaigned saying i want to be a uniter, not a divider. our president said, he offered a vision that republicans should sign on to. they used to be tough when i was a kid. now they are just whiny. he reached out to them plenty in his first term and all they did was spit in his eye. >> i think when it comes to comprehensive immigration reform, i think the president can work with senator marco rubio. but what about on climate change? what about same-sex marriage? is there going to be cooperation in those two areas? >> number one, on same-sex marriage, the president hasn't thrown any weight behind legislation or for repealing the legislation that paul's because, bill's boss signed

was elected governor of arkansas. she would become the first first lady to do so. >> i suppose i could have stayed home and bake kd cookies. >> then came washington. >> this social security card will represent a right of every citizen and it will give each of us the security of knowing we will be taken care of when we need help. >> her health care initiative came crashing down in 1994. her high visibility came at a cost. but the superwoman learned to steel herself. there was the unexplained suicide vince foster and questions about the clinton's whitewater land deal but the challenges didn't end there. >> i did not have sexual relations with that woman, miss lewinsky. >> the affair and the house vote after that to impeach her husband threatened to derail team clinton but hillary was nothing if not resilient. she ran for congress and elected sin for from new york with 56% of the note. she became the first first lady to enter congress and in 2007 another first. >> when people tell me, well, you know, i don't think a woman can be elected president, i said, well, i don't believe that but we're g
taxpayers to manage their own budget when elected leaders fail to do sthosme house has passed a budget each of the last two years. the other body must do theirs if we are going to control the out of control spending. for years the senate has gotten away without passing a budget but they have found time to pass laws that increase spending. s that terrible way to run a government and i support this bill which will pay for bills already obligated. we have to stophe political gamesmanship occurrg here in this town and work together to find common sense solutions to cut spending and find savings in our budget. i look forward to passing this bill that will finally hold congress accountable and begin put -- putting america on a debt repayment plan and stop future generation from paying for the mistakes of the past. i yield back. the speaker pro tempore: the gentleman from michigan. mr. levin: can i ask how much time is remaining on both sides. the speaker pro tempore: yes, you may. this secret from michigan has nine and a half minutes, the other secret from michigan has five and a half minutes and
. but when so much of the political talk in the final weeks of the election campaign were about talking points and so forth, which is its own legitimate area, it was interesting to see how careful she was in making certain that she had no part in that. >> one other story we were talking about at the top of the show, the pentagon today will announce that women will now be allowed to serve in full combat roles. at first they'll be phased into roles working as medics and manning artillery, but eventually they could serve in elite commando units directly in the line of fire. for the past ten years, u.s. military women have served at the front lines in both iraq and afghanistan but never in combat. 152 women have been killed in the course of both conflicts. of course, we've been talking around the table about this. there are some contrarian points of view. >> yeah, there's a piece on the op-ed page of "the wall street journal" this morning. ryan smith is a marine infantrymen that served in iraq. he writes about "the reality that awaits women in combat. societal norms are a reality, and their
time as we approached an election. americans are still entitled to be told the truth. did you select embassador rice? >> i did not. although i have not had a chance to testify, i have seen the resulting debate. you are right. it was a terrorist attack. what caused it? that is what we did not know. we did not know what their motives were. after months of research, it was made clear the picture remains still complicated. i say that because in the unclassified, i " key questions surrounding the identity and motivation of the prepared -- of the perpetrators remains to be determined. i recommend all staff read the classified version, which goes into greater detail. i cannot speak to its. it goes into greater detail becausebut where a variety of pl causes and triggers afford it. and there's evidence the attacks were pre coordinated and not necessarily indicative of an extensive planning. i personally was not focused on talking points. i was focused on keeping our people say. as i said, i have a very serious threat environment in yemen. we have people getting over that wall at the cairo, do
with a number of newly elected libyan parliamentarians. they were optimistic about building a democracy, creating a vibrant economy, and restoring fundamental human rights for libyan people. he was as enthusiastic as they were about the prospect. there is no question he will be missed by all who knew him and who worked with him. one of the things that troubles me, madam secretary, is the hoops we on this committee have had to jump through to get to the facts surrounding the deaths of the public servants. the state department has delayed and delayed coming forth with information when this committee was finally presented with relevant data it had amounted to what could be called a document dump, hundreds of pages of paper in wide disarray in no particular order in terms of relevance or chronology often in duplicate but in different binders making it very difficult to locate documents that were of any help. our public servants if libya who were murdered on september 11th, and it is now january 23, more than four months later, it is unacceptable the accident has made it so difficult for con
the opportunity to join him for a dinner with a number of newly elected libyan parliament aryans. they were optimistic with creating the economy and restoring human rights for the people. he was as enthusiastic as they were about the prospects. no question he will be missed by all who knew him and worked with him. one of the things that troubles me is the hoops we on this committee had to jump through to get to the facts surrounding the deaths of these public servants. the state department has delayed and delayed coming forth with information. the committee was presented with the data, it amounted to what was called a document dump. hundreds of pages of paper in wide disarray in no order in terms of relevance and chronology in duplicate and different binders, making it difficult to locate documents of any help. our public servants in libya were murdered on september 11. it's now january 23rd. more than four months later. it's unacceptable that the state department made it so difficult for congress to exercise the oversight and responsibility. a couple of questions. within a couple of months
before the election and didn't want to ruin that talking point. those in the white house obviously say it was purely for intelligence reasons they were not confident enough in the intelligence at that point to say to a certainty that without question it was a terrorist attack by such and such group, and in addition they did not want to let any of the bad dguy that they were wise to them. >> dana, i was surprised how tough senator mccain and rand paul was. neither one minced any words in going eafr tafter the secretary state. i suspect that's going to be a prelude before she testifies this afternoon. there are republicans on real t questions for her as well. >> there certainly are. in a way i actually am not that surprised. i know you've seen john mccain get even more aggressive with the person on e other side of the deus sitting in the witness chair. ran paul likely has aspirations for higher office but, yes, absolutely. that always tends to be kind of the atmosphere here on capitol hill. the house, they're kind of more rabl rousers for lack of a better way to say it. i was told today
government to election toss try to get in there and help them with security, because it was clear that that was going to be one of their highest needs once they finally got stabilized. so there were a number of meetings. and i personally, i went to libya in october of 2011. i spoke with the then leadership, i met with them in international settings. we sent teams out, both civilian and military experts to try to help them. until recently, while they were going through their transitions it was a very difficult conversation because they didn't have, you know, the authority they thought. but now we're beginning and we have a long list of ways that we're trying to help improve security in libya. >> for example the october 2011 meeting at that meeting did this issue come up with regards to the inability of the libyan government to protect our institutions. did that come up at all in that conversation? >> we obviously talked a great deal about the deteriorating threat environment in libya. one of the reasons we had our own people on the ground, and why we were looking to try to figure o
weeks before the election had said that al qaeda had been decimated. jon: right. >> we know in fact al qaeda has been on the rise, not on the run. jon: and she seemed to back away from her boss, you know, president obama's statements about whether or not al qaeda has been decimated? >> she kind of put the little qualifier in there well, she said core al qaeda, referencing usama bin laden and what had been happening in afghanistan. i mean those are the real concerns. and my concern is still no one has been brought to justice. not the terrorists who did this. nor really adequately people within the state department who have been moved from one post to another, but really haven't been forced to pay the price by losing their own jobs as a result of the mistakes that were made that resulted in this. so those are the concerns and questions that continue and they're going to continue in the questioning of secretary kerry in his hearings tomorrow. jon: yeah. it does seem strange that this pretty scathing review board report came out and yet, nobody really has been disciplined in much of a sens
to libya to observe the elections and at that time on july 7th he expressed to me his deep and grave concerns about security, particularly in benghazi. and he continued to communicate with the state department and i don't know who else was privy of those cables about the deep concern of security there and the need for additional assistance and i will argue with facts that after that event took place, after the fall of gadhafi, the, quote, soft footprint was partially, to some degree, responsible for the tragedy that took place. the american people and the families of these four brave americans still have not gotten the answers that they deserve. i hope that they will get them. >> well, senator, i understand your very strong feelings. you knew chris, you were a friend of chris. you were one of the staunch reporters in the efforts to dislodge gadhafi and try to give the libyan people a chance and we just have a disagreement. we have a disagreement about what did happen and when it happened with respect to explaining the sequence of events. we did get to talk to the ds agents when they
, in the 2014 mid terms? >> this is a line preceding the election that that's what he was doing through the whole fiscal cliff debate and i really don't think that during that debate, that's what he was doing, i think it was just sort of gravy for him, that he was destroying them and i think that the republicans, frankly, are doing a really good job of destroying themselves and obama doesn't have to do much. but now looking forward, i think he probably has figured out that it's in his interest to divide them as much as he can. and i don't think there's anything that's unusual for among politicians and you have people like, you know, cbs' political director writing that's what he should do. i don't think it's exactly a re. >> megyn: what is wrong-- two questions for you, monica, what is wrong with the tea party in the house maintaining their ideological stripes and digging in their heels and saying, no, we're not going to compromise, our constituents don't want us to compromise so-- and what is wrong with the president's response, fine, i'm going to try and divide and conquer you and hav
